A lot of folks don't know it -- it was in the papers, then, but that was a long time ago -- but I was born backwards.
I don't mean a breach birth. I mean I was born old and I'm getting younger every day. Not, perhaps unfortunately on the outside... no I was born a normal pink, sticky baby, normal size. But my thoughts were old. My dreams were old.
I was old.
But as the years went on... I forgot. I forgot all the answers to the eternal questions I'd known. I forgot the deep thoughts and wisdom I took for granted as a child.
I became, increasingly, a simpleton... sharing what I thought was wisdom in vague platitudes or sophomoric, dimestore philosophy, prattling to everyone I new about the eternal truths I thought were emerging as my mind slowly devolved.
Where would it end? I should have asked myself... One thing I can tell you... as dumb as I get, I doubt I'll be dumb enough to go see that new movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button... LOL
PS... Don't bother with the Ogg Video of this, below. But the Mp4 is really pretty good for such a small file.
